Bridgetown Conservatory of Musical Theatre will present The Sondheim Tribute Revue with a cast of 10 performers, ages 12-22. The Stephen Sondheim Society notes that Sondheim was "widely acknowledged as the most innovative, most influential and most important composer and lyricist in modern Broadway history. For more than 50 years, he has set an unsurpassed standard of brilliance and artistic integrity in musical theatre. His accolades include an Academy Award, eight Tony Awards (more than any other composer) including the Special Tony Award for Lifetime Achievement in the Theatre, multiple Grammy Awards, multiple Drama Desk awards and a Pulitzer Prize."

Rick Lewis, Artistic Director and Founder of Bridgetown Conservatory said: "We are so excited to present this youthful perspective on the works of Stephen Sondheim. So often our young performers are relegated to "junior" or "high school" versions of Broadway musicals, portraying adult characters and themes.. With the Sondheim Tribute Revue, we were provided the opportunity to select specific material for young performers, allowing them to storytell on their terms. Our production is geared to the point of view of young performers."
